The Women of Lockerbie by Deborah Breevoort, directed by Pam Reckamp
The Women of Lockerbie is written in the structure of a Greek Tragedy, examining the crash of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The story follows, Madeline, a mother from New Jersey searching the hills of Lockerbiefor her son’s remains. She encounters the women of Lockerbie, who are struggling against the U.S. government to get the clothing of the victims found in the plane’s wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes and return them to the victim’s families. The Women of Lockerbie is inspired by the true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional.
